Ha--what is IT with the "PBR"? My boys are all about that these days, and it has become the new mantra for a good time at the Tell House (eg, "hey, pa, I'll pick up some PBR and we can watch the Lakers get beat, k?"), though it probably only works since I don't drink anymore...

:(

Anyhooo, I find myself saying it regularly...

Well, like deadhead53 says, for the price it is good. Although I would describe it as “drinkable,” rather than good. But, it has also become somewhat of a fad in recent years, particularly among college crowds, and hipsters (I'll get to that in a moment).There have been loads of pop culture references to PBR which has helped increase it's popularity as well.

I was introduced to the craze of PRB about 6 years ago, with it being one of the staples for beer pong tournaments at college parties (Keystone is the current reigning champ). We drank it because we loved the old school cans and image of the company, as well as the PRB's association with hicks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3iVHxP8FQ), since Susquehanna University is smack in the middle of Bumblefuck, PA. When we got a house off-campus, we would sit on the front porch drinking PRB's, and watch the Amish go by on horse and buggy. Then we would get stoned and go play with the wild Alpacas (they are really mean!), but that's another story.

Anyway, I did a little research, and apparently the main reason for the increase in PPR's popularity is those damn hipsters. I couldn't believe this:

Hey WT for me it is a good solid and inexpensive beer, that along with yuengling (although I can't get it in MA - I do have sources - 6 cases stocked away in the basement) for the money those 2 beers are good, inexpensive and way better than bud light, coors light and bud. I can't drink thick dark beer anymore kills me with argina! These 2 are it at my house and they both are brewed in the US

Actually it has become my beer of choice when a place serves it!
